Review for World T.E.A.M. Sports, Holbrook, NY, USA

Rating: 1 stars  

.
After attending their "face of America" ride in dc this past weekend I am mortified at the things that transpired.
Insufficient meals for the wounded riders ,lack of communication or leadership, veterans left to fend for themselves with luggage and equipment ,no medical personal on staff at the ride ,injuries being ignored and on and on. More than 20 miles between rest Areas etc. They are dangerous for our wounded warriors.
Not to mention rude and detached volunteers who were more concerned with their needs then of the disabled veterans participating in the ride.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage disabled veterans to seek other groups.and establish clear ,accountable leadership.

Role:  Donor

World T.E.A.M. Sports recently celebrated 20 years of organizing and managing inclusive sporting events for veteran and civilian athletes with and without disabilities. Our non-profit organization has encouraged and celebrated the potential of all athletes to overcome challenges in events ranging from climbs of Himalayan mountain peaks, a cross-country bicycle ride in Vietnam with former combatants, multi-sport adventure races in Colorado, and our Face of America ride from the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia to the historic battlefields of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. Over the years, the Face of America ride has included thousands of injured veterans from the United States, Canada, and other nations, and this year included more than 130 injured veterans and more than 400 active-duty and retired military and civilians from 35 states, Puerto Rico, Canada, and Denmark. World T.E.A.M. Sports ensures that each of our events is planned and executed with the highest level of safety and that each of our participants is treated with the utmost dignity. Our meals, routes, and logistics incorporate years of positive and constructive feedback as we continuously strive to meet the needs and wishes of our participants. We recognize that in events with such large numbers of participants, we will not always be able to please everyone. While we are truly sorry that we did not meet the expectations of the rider above, we appreciate his or her feedback, and are grateful that we are able to serve so many others who come back year after year.

 

Review for Wounded Warrior Project, Jacksonville, FL, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Life saving and standard setting organization.
I was so grateful to the wwp for helping my family and I find a new Normal and reason to keep going that I agreed to be a national spokesman and put my very personal journey into public view.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase their staff and funding for more resources to reach more wounded warriors
